Cake Batter Ice Cream

We are celebrating our 5-year anniversary here at The Slow Roasted Italian and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than with our new favorite ice cream. Sprinkles and all. Huge thanks to all our readers, cheers to another fabulous 5 years.

My favorite part of baking with my mom when I was growing up was definitely licking the beaters. I was a cake batter girl from the word go and those beaters never did hold enough batter so I'd clean the bowl too. LOL. That has been the way as long as I can remember, I just love that cake batter.

About 18 years ago I moved to Arizona and my best friend Chad (now my husband) introduced me to Cold Stone Creamery. Oh that was a game changer for sure. I am pretty sure that day I ordered sweet cream ice cream with brownies and almonds mixed in. But at some point I sampled the cake batter and oh my word! I was hooked.

I don't think I have gone to Cold Stone and walked out without at least a taste of the cake batter ice cream. Do you remember when they stopped making it? {{{GASP!!!}}} I was so upset.

Perfect time to create your own at home. And that is what I finally did. This took about 10 different recipes and multiple cake mix varieties to get it just perfect, but it is. Trust me and the 6 quarts of Cold Stone Cake Batter Ice Cream that we have devoured.

My 6-year-old has turned me into a sprinkle lover and I couldn't bare to make this ice cream without our favorite rainbow sprinkles included. Chad went so far as to buy a 7 pound container of rainbow sprinkles. Seriously. I am even packing a container of sprinkles for our upcoming vacation.

Sprinkles. Never leave home without them.

    2. The Cold Stone Cake Batter Ice Cream Copycat is looks so beautiful. Thank you.

    3. Delicious! It totally reminded me of Cold Stone's famous flavor. I usually mix mine with crushed graham crackers, but for a 4th of July dessert, mixed in funfetti cookies and lots of red, white and blue sprinkles. Everyone loved it!

    4. This recipe is incredible, tastes just like cold stone. I can't get cold stone where I live anymore so this is going to be a new staple. Can't stop eating it!!!

    5. Any thoughts on making this without the whole milk. Would an almond or soy milk be possible?

    6. I just made this exactly as recipe says. My entire family said it is their new favorite ice cream flavor! My husband was very excited I found a recipe this delicious. Thank you for sharing!
